These are my notes for our 9/4/2011 church meeting.

Leader: Russ Farmer

Assignment

Selfishness: We'll be discussing this topic and what it really means to your relationship to God.  What is your definition of selfishness and can you find any scriptures that relate to the topic?

My Notes

Selfishness is defined as:

  1. devoted to or caring only for oneself; concerned primarily with one's own interests, benefits, welfare, etc., regardless of others.
  2. characterized by or manifesting concern or care only for oneself: selfish motives.

Selfishness is a plague to any relationship and our relationship with GOD is no different. The more focused I am on myself as opposed to being focused on GOD, the more unhappy, unfulfilled, joyless, thankless, bitter, lonely, poor, and unpleasant I will be. By contrast, focusing more on GOD helps me to see myself as I am in comparison to His greatness which is humbling and helps me be more thankful and joyful as a result of His love, mercy and grace.

Scriptures dealing with selfishness include:
